Snow Angels is the ninth studio album, and second Christmas album, by Over the Rhine, released independently in 2006. The album was released by Great Speckled Dog on October 2, 2007.
Snow Angels was released ten years after the group's first Christmas disc, 1996's The Darkest Night of the Year. While Darkest Night was largely composed of interpretations of traditional Christmas songs, Snow Angels was almost entirely original material. The only non-original track in the album is a lounge-inspired take on "Jingle Bells" that debuted during the 2004 Christmas tour.
"Darlin' (Christmas Is Coming)" was performed live as far back as the 2001 Christmas tour as a straight mid-tempo folk/pop song. The Snow Angels recording was drastically re-arranged into a swing-style arrangement and performed this way on the 2006 tour.
